Best Answer Eric Dierker says
Interesting answer and one I would not have expected, but you have a point. God's timing occurs when it is time, but the love has already been given and the decision made.
Wow, what miracles we miss.
I have a theory-about feeding the 5 thousand. They all had the food secreted away in their robes (common for the time) And the most beautiful miracle was all mankind sharing that secreted food with each other.
Who's to say it didn't happen the way it says, though? Can't limit God.
That is the beauty of it. What would be more miraculous? God tossing down some food. Or mankind sharing with all others and not worrying about tomorrow. What would be more beautiful, God sharing (duh) or love creating an atmosphere of sharing?
Ah, but that is an unanswerable question because it's all beautiful either way.
And so we are happy to ponder: Does God create miracles or do we? Certainly the answer is,, together. So as Sherlock says; who is the most probable to wait until the last moment? Shanmarie, you bring out the best in us, the miracle is you.
Well, what does one say to a compliment like that?! Thanks because I've certainly brought out the worst in myself lately.

Yes, everyone would hope for a quick response, but that is not always the best thing.
Benny Njuguna says
I think you are right on target. However, I'm not sure that this person had given up any sort of hope. Her faith seemed abundant and it just struck me as an odd thing today. Yet, it seemed her prayers were answered last minute as she suggested.

Yes, our Father is indeed a loving parent!

I understand what you are saying, Mahmo, and I think that you are right about that.
That's a wonderful example. Thanks for sharing. :) They sound like great hubs. I'll try to go take a look at them.
I sometimes am not good at waiting patiently
I don't think many of us are. We try to tell our kids that they must be patient and wait sometimes, but who really enjoys it?

Thanks for answering! It was a surprise to see I had a new answer to an old question. :)
Faith Reaper says
I wish I was allowed more characters to respond to you! Praise God for your miracle, Faith Reaper! Thanks for sharing your testimony with us. :) I agree that God's timing is always best, for whatever the reasons may be.
I don't know about that. I think quite a few people make prayer a part of a daily routine.
How sad that life has got you so negative. ParadigmEnacted, I hope you get some hope somewhere. You would be wrong, love is my first choice. Hedonism just does not get me fired up. Only love works for me. That other stuff is boring. Again I pray.
True. There are groups of people who are always exempt from my indictments. A lot of people pray for things to get better, and then when they do, they forget all about God. The people least likely to do that are the ones who live the simplest lives.
and thank you Lord is at the top of my list :)
God is everywhere and in everything. I pray on a daily basis and multiple times a day, not just for myself either. In fact, mostly for others, unless you count being grateful for things I do have. I know I'm not the only one with this habit.

Indeed he does, OutWest!
Ah...trying to teach children patience is not an easy feat.
